RUPES has announced the expansion of its manufacturing capabilities in North America with the addition of a new 3,700 square meter operation in Houston, TX. This new facility will serve as a dedicated consumables manufacturing hub with the full capacity to manufacture, package, and ship RUPES various polishing pads and compounds.

“Our Houston operation demonstrates how serious we are about our commitment to the United States, Canada, and beyond,” said Rob Volkert, CEO for RUPES USA. “Manufacturing and shipping our pads from Houston means we have significantly improved our ability to meet the demands of our customers here, while also taking some of the burden from our Italian factories.”
